Today, everyone is an Iranian.
"You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought
you could do. There are no limitations in what you can do except the
limitations of your own mind." Darwin P. Kingsley
Today is 18 Tir, July 8, 2004. It was exactly five years ago when the brutal
and totalitarian regime of the Islamic Republic attacked the student dorm
and savagely beat the sleeping students and murdered others. The July 8,
1999 tragedy is a day that will live forever in the minds all freedom loving
Today, we are united in the spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood and
standing tall to let the world hear our continuous, everlasting voracity and
aspirations for a free and democratic Iran. Today, we pledge ourselves under
divine afflatus, to stand beside Iranians in Iran and echo their voices
around the globe. Today, we make history, yet again.
It is very difficult for the civilized world to envision the sufferings of
the Iranian people under the absolute theocratic terrorism in Iran. The
figures we have been seeing are beyond belief and simply incomprehensible.
Islamic terrorism has been responsible for the torturing, imprisonment and
death on false charges, of hundreds of peace-loving Iranian souls.
There are simply no logical answers to the actions of these sub-humans who
call themselves the Islamic Republic. The true answer would be, of course,
for them to destroy or disorganize all possible sources of the opposition
group and impede their progress until they (The Islamic Republic) have
developed the Atomic bomb and destabilize, not only Iran, but also the
entire region and the world. The theocratic despotism's ultimate goal is
sacrificing the Persian nation and turn it into the most aggressive Islamic
terrorist nation the world has ever seen.
It is the love of our beloved pre-Islamic heritage that has held Iranians
tightly together for centuries. It is the rooted passion within each and
every Iranian that has propelled the Persians to persevere and keep their
Pre-Islamic culture when the barbaric Islamic culture was forced upon the
fabric of Persians' soul. And it was the Persian heritage, again, that was
attacked by the Islamic thugs in order to Arabize the Iranian nation.
Persian language and tradition and indeed our entire culture has acted as a
common denominator to hold together the fragments of our enflamed souls.
Iranian people for centuries have been resisting oppressive and tyrannical
governments. They have been struggling to achieve their liberty and freedom.
They have continued to pay the price of liberty and independence from the
aggressors and the totalitarian regimes with their blood.
We will never abandon our love for liberty. We will build a society that is
vital, liberal, tolerant, allowing freedom to all alike, Jews, Zoroastrians,
Baha'i, Christians, Muslims and all those with no religion affiliations at
all. We will struggle for our political liberty.
The Iranian revolution that supposed to lead to a glorious dream of
independence and freedom, ended up being a travesty, devastatingly
reminiscent of the Dark Ages of the Arab occupiers.
Today, the theocratic Islamic fascists, insisting upon absolute
Stalinism-terrorism and the atmosphere of claustrophobia and oppression to
run Iran, and at the same time, trying to turn back the clock to the era of
the invasion of the ruthless, heartless, merciless Arab
imperialist-terrorists, combined with their own Islamic version.
George Orwell's riveting novel "1984" should have been written exclusively
for the empire of evil of the Islamic regime in Iran. "WAR IS PEACE. FREEDOM
IS SLAVERY. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH." That is how Islam defies the world.
Orwell saw it coming, but he was unaware of its exact date and place. Like
Emmanuel Goldstein, the face of Ayatollah Khamenehi, "the Enemy of the
People," was shown on the big screen. "The Big Brother is watching you." The
Islamic Republic's two-minutes of hate has become hours long Friday prayers,
chanting death to America and death to Israel.
Yes, I believe Orwell unconsciously wrote his fictional book of "1984" for
the emergence of the new Empire of Evil; for the evildoers of the Islamic
Republic in Iran who have made life intolerable, unbearable and miserable
for the courageous and valorous people of Iran.
"Throughout history men have had an intuitive understanding that the mind
can be manipulated. Elaborate strategies have been worked out to achieve
this end. Ecstasy rituals, frightening masks, loud noises, eerie chants all
have been used to compel the crowd to accept the beliefs of their leaders.
Even if an ordinary man at first resists a cruel shaman or medicine man, the
hypnotizing ritual gradually breaks his will."
Those who have lived in Muslim countries in general and a Shi'a country in
particular would understand the repetition of the rituals and the
reinforcement of the mass brainwashing technique. As a matter of fact, it is
through these rituals that they have been successful in enflaming people's
emotions to commit crimes for the sake of Islam and their thirst for power.
Iranian people don't expect the world to come to Iran and fight for them.
Every decent and freedom loving nation knows that the Iranian people have
the right and the duty to change their form of government. One American
stated that "What we can do for the Iranian people is to lend them our
support: Not to fight on their behalf, but to stand by their side. To cheer
their struggle and clearly signal that we have no intention of propping up
the clerics, no matter what, in their growing desperation, they may offer us
Today, we are standing tall and declaring our perpetual commitment to the
liberation of Iran and her people. Today, we are marching for the support of
the voiceless students and the Iranian people in Iran. Today, our
demonstration is inspired by demonstrations of the Iranian people in Iran,
which were in turn inspired, by demonstrations of the students against the
dictatorship and barbarity of the Islamic Republic in Iran. We shall all
demonstrate until every Iranian is free. Today, everyone is an Iranian.
